This collection called Mappa Animalia is meant as a tribute to the animal kingdom. Each map is honouring a specific class/family/subfamily of animal by naming mountains, seas, lakes, cities etc. after fictional and non-fictional animals falling within each group. For example one map is made in the image of the tiger. That one is called Pantherinae - meaning big cats - and it represents both the tiger, lion, jaguar, leopard and snow leopard. Every one of these big cats then has its own country on the map.
The level of detail is made to match that of a real school map.
